A woman who proudly calls herself “Fat Trophy Wife” claims she was harassed by an Alaska Airlines flight attendant over her choice to wear a crop top before being thrown off the flight, even after she covered up her midriff.
“Fat Trophy Wife” Thrown Off Alaska Airlines Flight For Wearing Crop Top
She was traveling to Fairbanks and chose to wear what appeared to be bicycling shorts and a crop top on the flight. Her “private parts” were fully covered. She claims that flight attendants approached her multiple times and berated her for her choice of wardrobe. Furthermore, she claims that when asked to cover up her exposed midriff, she pulled down her shirt immediately.
Nevertheless, she was removed from the flight by police, so I have to imagine that things got tense onboard.
In a video posted on TikTok, she is seen being escorted off the flight and later sitting down with police officers to discuss what happened.
She whines that she is being detained, despite very clearly being told by the officer that she is there on a voluntary basis and they just trying to help mediate.
“I was harassed about my outfit…They asked me to put my shirt on, I put my shirt back on, and then they approached me again, saying that I can’t wear this, my stomach is showing and it’s inappropriate. And I said ‘I’m covered up, I’m fine.'”
Before we say that Alaska Airlines targets passengers of size, it’s worth noting that a skinny girl was also shamed by a flight attendant on Alaska Airlines over a crop top just one month ago. While she complied and wasn’t thrown off, the two incidents unfolded in a very similar fashion.
Personally, I don’t want to see anyone’s stomach when I’m on an airplane. In this case, the very name “Fat Trophy Wife” and the way she chooses to dress is all about bringing attention to her. I don’t find that empowering, but pathetic. At the same time, I respect her self-confidence and I don’t find her wardrobe choice offensive enough to remove her.
Alaska Airlines apologized to the skinny girl a month ago…we’ll see if they apologize here.
Sometimes I wonder if people like this want to be thrown off a flight for the attention it will bring. In any case, I’m not convinced she was fat-shamed as much as Alaska Airlines seems uncomfortable with crop tops no matter the passenger size.
